Matt Barnes has been in the news a lot this week. Mostly because he said a very NSFW term to James Harden’s mother during a Game 2 loss to the Rockets. He has since apologized, but now he’s on to his next big story.

Who needs reporters when you have Matt Barnes.

 
The L.A. Times has reported that Paul did tell Barnes that he is indeed playing.  
Book it! CP3 is back. Beat writers take notice of Matt Barnes. That’s how it’s done. Paul is returning at the perfect time as the Clippers look to take advantage of Games 3 and 4 at home with the series even at a game apiece.
